Factoid: Green Bay Packers

The Packers will have to play without their featured wide receiver, and they’re on the road against a good defense. You would think that would derail their offense.

Around the NFL: Aaron Jones

In a mild surprise, to me at least, the Packers signed Aaron Jones yesterday to a four-year, $48 million contract. It's surprising only in that Green Bay protect Jones from leaving with the franchise tag, making it seem he'd reach the open market. It's not surprising in terms of what Jones has earned over the past few seasons.   more »
